Meet Crochet Lover Marianne Dekkers-Roos

Marianne Dekkers-Roos, on Instagram as @marretjeroos, is a Netherlands-based crocheter and designer who also loves music, books, nature, food, various crafts, and of course, her family, which includes her husband, two adult children, two dogs, and two cats.

Although now retired and no longer active online, Marianne has left quite a body of work on the internet that is impressive and inspiring.

About Crochet Lover Marianne Dekkers-Roos

Marianne formally blogged at maRRose CCC (Colorful Crochet and Crafts) but moved over to Instagram full-time in 2016.

Although officially retiring from the crafting scene in November 2022, you can still see the work Marianne has shared over the years on her Instagram, while also browsing her older blog, which includes her crochet tutorials.

She writes there:

“I have always liked being creative, from when I was a child. Coloring, drawing, making puppets, using the shells I found on the beach to decorate boxes, anything crafty – I loved it.

My first piece of crochet was a poncho, in pink, green, and white, and I was 9 years old when I finished that. I clearly remember feeling ever so proud when I could finally wear it, although ponchos had gone out of fashion already by that time!

After my professional career as a management assistant, I have revived my long-lost creative side and have actually discovered that this is where my true passion lies …… Never too old to find out, right? Quilting, knitting, crafting in general, but mainly crochet. Ever since I picked up my hook again back in 2010 I’ve been doing so with great pleasure and joy.”

Marianne has filled her own home with her crochet work and gifted much to others while also having formally sold her work and patterns on Etsy (but has since closed down her shop).
